Despite Samoa Joe just crushing it on the mic as both an intimidating, yet tempting heel, Kofi Kingston stole the show. This week on SmackDown, Kingston reached into Stone Cold Steve Austin’s bag of tricks to send a clear message to his rival.
WWE showed the middle finger live on air, but did go to black on the replay they uploaded to Twitter.
Every hero needs a good villain. In order to kick Kingston’s title reign into high gear, he needed to work with a heel on Joe’s level.
Could this feud last all the way to SummerSlam, or will Samoa Joe just be a single chapter on Kofi Kingston’s championship story?
